Tsukuba University: The Role of Academia in Innovation (August 29th @ Venture Café)


Join and connect with entrepreneurs–in digital health and information tech–from the University of Tsukuba, as well as with venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and academic researchers from the Boston area. It will be a unique occasion to explore opportunities in ecosystems of not only Boston but also Japan, whose society is changing with one of the fastest aging rate offering diverse business opportunities, though still striving to build an effective ecosystem as compared to Boston.

Located at the heart of the biggest science city in Japan, University of Tsukuba’s early startups have raised a total of more than 100M $ since 2017, ranking among the top in Japanese universities, so that the university now seeks to further promote innovation by startups in collaboration with the Boston area by setting up an activity base at CIC.

Who should attend?
  • Investors seeking to meet innovative, leading tech startups
  • Companies looking for strategic alliance opportunities with Japan
  • Other ecosystem players and students
